The Library of Congress's Rare Book & Special Collections Division is pleased to announce the release of a new digital collection, "Miller NAWSA Suffrage Scrapbooks, 1897-1911: From the collection of Elizabeth Smith Miller and Anne Fitzhugh Miller."
Between 1897 and 1911, Elizabeth Smith Miller and her daughter, Anne Fitzhugh Miller, filled seven large scrapbooks with ephemera and memorabilia related to their work with women's suffrage. The Elizabeth Smith Miller and Anne Fitzhugh Miller scrapbooks are a part of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) Collection in the Rare Book and Special Collections Division of the Library of Congress. These scrapbooks document the activities of the Geneva Political Equality Club, which the Millers founded in 1897, as well as efforts at the state, national, and international levels to win the vote for women. They offer a unique look at the political and social atmosphere of the time, as well as chronicle the efforts of two women who were major participants in the suffrage movement.
"Miller NAWSA Suffrage Scrapbooks, 1897-1911: From the collection of Elizabeth Smith Miller and Anne Fitzhugh Miller" compliments other women's history collections available from the Library of Congress's American Memory Collection, including:
- "Votes for Women: Selections from the National American Woman Suffrage Association, 1848-1921"
- "Women of Protest: Photographs from the Records of the National Woman's Party" (recently released)
